states of america, "atem lo levad." [ applause ] >> you are notly alone. >> president barack obama addressed a young audience this week in israel's capital, jerusalem, at its convention center on his first presidential visit to israel. the speech was up-beat, even rousing, but the language measured, even guarded, with state department edits poking through. >> peace is possible. it is possible. [ applause ] >> i'm not saying it's guaranteed. i can't even say that it is more likely than not, but it is possible. i know there must be something exhausting about endless talks about talks and daily controversies and just the grinding status quo. i'm sure there's a temptation just to say, ah, enough, let me focus on my small corner of the world and my family and my job and what i can control. but it's possible. negotiations will be necessary but there's a little secret about where they must lead. twfor two peoples. two states for two peoples. >> question, was president obama's speech to college students in israel and the trip itself designed to reset u.s.- israeli relations that were badly
back in 2009 regarding settlements and what we heard this week from president obama regarding settlements being a precondition to returning the peace talks, it was different. >> look, it's fair, you're right there have been historical differences, not just between this administration and my government today but over a period of years there's been differences between washington and jerusalem on the issue of settlements, but what we do agree on is this issue has to be solved between israelis and palestinians around the negotiating table. that's where the final status of the settlements will be determined, which ones will be on the israeli side of the frontier, which ones will be on the palestinian side of the frontier. that's clear. and what we have to do is try to restart the peace process and that's the only way forward, to have direct talks between israelis and palestinians. now, i hope that that will be possible soon. we're ready. we have been continuously ready to start peace talks without precontinues. i hope the palestinians will now come to the table. >> how much was sof
last week. >> and we are awaiting the arrival of air force one at ramstein air force base in germany. president obama is on his way home from his landmark visit to the middle east. he wrapped up the trip today with a visit to the ancient city of pjetra in jordan and this trip included stops at the west bank and first visit to israel as president. what did president obama actually accomplish on this trip if anything. former ambassador to the united nations john bolton will be with us to weigh in on that. >> jamie: and we're looking forward to that. meanwhile, president obama's health care reform law is turning three today. and the political battles over it continue. two elections later, one supreme court decision, and this week, a rare show of bipartisanship to repeal an unpopular tax in that law. molly henneberg taking a look at that for us, live from washington. hi, molly. >> hi, jamie, that was the medical device tax on everything from latex gloves to wheelchairs to dental instruments and republicans and democrats on capitol hill voted to repeal it, but health insurance industry ad
fields of the region and the peace process. overall, president obama sets the right tone this week during this, his first trip to israel since taking office. but there's certainly a lot of hard work ahead, if he hopes to make any real inroads towards peace and deal with huge dangers in the region now. our chief white house correspondent jessica yellin is standing by, and john king are joining us from amman, jordan, where the president wrapped up his trip. he has done well in jordan, now the hard work begins. where do we go from here? >> reporter: the white house feels he accomplished what they set out as his primary goal, which was to reconnect with the israeli people and convince them that he understands where they're coming from on the primary security issues. the big question as you point out, can this lead to real accomplishments, that would be on the peace front with palestinians, simply too many questions that remain outstanding when it comes to settlements and exchange of prisoners, other major issues that the arab world and palestinians are unsatisfied with. and syria, iran, these
's really stark ideological difference. >> president obama came under attack this week for filling out his ncaa brackets. some said he should have been working on his budget instead. here's his final four if you're curious. louisville, indiana, florida, ohio state. he has indiana winning it all. i know you have duke winning it all. i picked iowa state over the fighting irish yesterday so it helped my bracket. back to the subject. is it a fair criticism of the president if he should be writing a budget and not filling out brackets? >> no. again, that is ridiculous, christine, in terms of using this as a talking point. we know what president obama's priorities are in the budget. he's been talking about it nonstop for his first term and nonstop during this campaign. and by the way, the majority of americans, the american public, agree with his priorities on the budget. it's one of the reasons why he got re-elected. and so i think right now the focus moving forward is going to be where can we come together? amy made an interesting point about how ted cruz and rand paul did not go with this bud
